IN SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS

Clay for Kids has been Bringing the Curriculum to Life in Calgary schools since 1981.  We are always developing new projects to enhance learning and help teachers achieve learning outcomes through creative connection.  Students will have the opportunity to experience an ancient art form and learn about the science of clay and glass fusion in a 90 minute or 120 minute workshop.

We have over 150 projects to choose from or we will work with you to create a unique project for your class.  We are committed to providing a high quality, fun and hands on experience where students can express themselves while connecting to their school subjects on a deeper level.

Our materials are all natural, gluten free and made by the earth without preservatives or additives.  Our slip glazes are hand made using minerals, clay and powdered glass.
